For this special Character Creation ReCast episode, we’re highlighting the third part of our small games series, where Amelia and Ryan were joined by Chris Foster of the Play/Test podcast to talk about InSpectres, a game about a ghost hunting start up. This episode stands well on its own, too, with creation and discussion fit into a single episode!
